About Me:

Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.


Pure
January 31, 2009

I just rented Pure. They should put the words "Colombian Gold" after it because it's addicting. It's also a lot more challenging than I predicted. I hope to write a full review soon, but I'm going on vacation this coming week so I may not have time. Just wanted to make a note that I am enjoying it very much. Downfall... the computer players may be a little TOO good. I am often calling bullshit on computer players who come out of nowhere to claim my first place right before the finish line! LOVE IT!

Reply Online Gaming Rentals
January 29, 2009

Thanks HG and Stevie for your comments on my previous blog. It got me thinking and I started this post originally as a comment but it turned into a blog...

HG is right, downloads are definitely the future. I know Microsoft is putting a lot of pennies into the future of downloads (which I heard is why they have no immediate plans for implementing a BluRay drive into the 360 or future consoles). When it comes down to it, you really only need one drive to play any video game, HD movie, or album and that's a hard drive. Imagine having a universal hard drive that caries all of your media, plays everywhere, and backs up online.

Online Game Rentals Via Netflix / Blockbuster
January 27, 2009

I have been thinking about the future of game rentals through sites like Netflix and Blockbuster. I have both services because I simply like both for different reasons (I like NetFlix streaming and I like Blockbuster's in-store exchange)... What is missing for me is game rentals.

I've read a few "debates" over this issue recently and I really have been thinking how silly these debates will seem once companies begin adding games to their rental plans.

The decision to add games can only give gamers more options. The "debate" doesn't really seem to be over weather companies should have games, but rather how to implement games rental plans. I have read everything from, "charge a small fee per game" to "charge $20 per month" to add a gaming option to your plan.

Braid: Fun to play and watch.
January 25, 2009

My Braid review was rejected by HG. Being my second review submission, I just didn't quite expand on the game information as much as I should have. I've tried to go a little farther with my review below and hopefully you'll find it informative.

I first downloaded Braid as a demo on Xbox Live. I'd say 95% of the time I end up deleting my demos and not purchasing the game. However, Braid was in the 5% that I ended up paying for.
